Heavenly Tajik Necklace
I could go on and on about this necklace. From the intense and plentiful coral, to the heavily worn Yemeni amulet box. The black beads are a mix of Mauritanian coral, studded with silver, garnets and glass. Each component traveled trade routes to get to Central Asia where it was assembled and worn for nearly a century.
